Dr. Barwick is amazing. I feared the unknown of therapy and I just want to say there is light at the end of the tunnel. She has helped me overcome so much. She’s very compassionate, kind, selfless person, and an amazing therapist. She really does care and goes above and beyond. The guidance and the tools to push you to do things that will be beneficial. I’ve really enjoyed working with her thus far and super thankful to have been matched with her. I will continue to keep in touch with her as I take this next stage in my life. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Barwick is an extremely compassionate, selfless person and an excellent therapist! She is empathetic, but pushes you to do things that she thinks will be helpful, even when I wasn’t convinced I could do them. She makes herself available for her patients at times that are convenient and makes you feel like you can reach out to her anytime you need her. She has helped me immensely and I highly recommend her.
